Pictures for Sad Children

Alright! I've wanted to do this for a while and between being busy and being lazy I've put it off, but I'm finally going to do it. People need to know about this. It's Pictures for Sad Children.

Pictures for Sad Children is a comic that should probably be read from the beginning. Although I'd say the comics themselves can stand out individually as well - it just makes the whole experience that much better having started at the beginning.

The story first revolves around a ghost named Paul who has just died. Later the story starts to revolve around another character named Gary. Paul, and now Gary, work at a Call Center that handles overflow calls from other companies.

There's a lot more than what just happens at work though. Currently the main storyline has been left for new things. The whole series has a very... real, sad, negative, and hilarious feel to it. It can be blunt. It can be serious. It will be and totally is - amazing.

We have the amazing mind of John Campbell to thank for "Pictures for Sad Children." This isn't his only work I recommend checking out though. Links on his LiveJournal, Stereotypist will take you to some other works! I've read and overly enjoyed "Vegas Dump", and "The Man Who Used To Know Everything".
